it’s the small things
Wednesday, October 31, 2018      2 comments

typical
Tuesday, October 30, 2018      4 comments

This is day #2 of my journey back to a healthier me. And already, I wanted to stay in bed and sleep and skip the gym. THATS SO TYPICAL OF ME! I kept saying to myself, sleep is important, it’s one morning, the bed is so cozy...I got out of bed... Read more

I know that my weight and size are not the most important things about me. Yet, I’m always consumed by them. Can you relate? And then I realized that as much as I hate dieting and working hard to be active, it’s those things that make me fee... Read more
because I don’t have anyone to talk to about this stuff
Thursday, October 25, 2018      8 comments

My friends all lead busy lives and it’s hard to find time to talk to them. Especially when I just need to vent about life. And especially when it’s about my relationship. Marriage is tough. It’s hard work. It’s give and take and compromise and... Read more

This is it. This is the point I’ve hit too many times. But this is the time I actually succeed. This is the time I will reach my goals. This is the time it’s going to happen. I won’t give up on myself. I won’t let myself fail. ... Read more

Started the year in January at 203.4 Dropped to a consistent 193 Just hopped on the scale at 206.2 But the worst part of this is that my restless legs are back. My fibromyalgia pain is creeping in. I’m struggling to sleep. My knees hurt and mak... Read more

Tuesday, October 02, 2018      5 comments

Just a few months ago I wa so upset that the scale wouldn’t budge below 193. Then I hurt my back, struggled with bad weather, binging, stress... This morning I weighed in at 206.2 and I am so frustrated with myself. I’m disappointed with myself... Read more

constantly torn
Thursday, September 27, 2018      4 comments

I’m constantly torn between learning to just accept my body and then hating the way I look. My husband wants to take me out for a nice dinner Saturday and there is not a dress in my closet that I like or feel comfortable in. It makes me not wa... Read more
your daily routine
Thursday, September 20, 2018      4 comments

I read an article years back that said “the key to success is in your daily routine.” That statement has been replaying in my head the past few days. I’m in a terrible rut, tired of my routine and that’s when it all started to click in my head.... Read more

I say how I need to work on {insert area for improvement}, complain how I wish things were different, claim I need to make changes and always struggle to follow thru. Its kind of a no-brainer, but I’m really having to take action, with purpose... Read more
maybe less is more?
Sunday, September 16, 2018      5 comments

I’ve been so focused on doing everything, pushing myself too much. I’ve been stressing myself out, filling each day with too much, not sleeping enough, not getting to everything I plan, feeling like a failure. Maybe less is more? Maybe I need... Read more

Thursday, September 13, 2018      4 comments

Life happens all around us all the time. Some good days, some bad. My bad days give me so much anxiety and I do not eat any food but when I get home with some wine I binge, and binge and binge. It’s not pretty and it’s definitely not a healthy ... Read more
oh, the scale
Thursday, September 06, 2018      4 comments

I gained all my weight back plus a pound. Oh, I want to tear up just thinking about it. I hate the scale. And then I was wondering if I’m allowed to not weigh myself. If I’m allowed to focus on how my clothes feel, how much stronger I get in y... Read more
my poor brain
Tuesday, September 04, 2018      5 comments

My poor brain has been all over the place. I gained all the my weight back that I had lost. I’ve been telling myself I need to be strict. I’ve been telling myself I need to push myself harder. I haven’t been very kind with myself and been feelin... Read more
